On the way to work this morning (er, afternoon), I saw this sign on a telephone pole (in red, white, and blue letters, no less):
Learn to speak American
(Not kidding here, folks. If I had a camera phone I would've snapped a photo.)
So I got to wondering--should I call? Someone recently told me I speak with a northeastern accent (despite the fact that I've been in LA for ten years).
Nah. Accents are cool. Let's keep 'em.
